Two days in a row from Zion...nice treats.....just wondering how much saturation or vibrance you added to this photo, because the colors are so rich, especally the blues in the trees, not that there's anything wrong with that.....just to get an idea of the landscape....beautiful shot

Amazing view and great colours, did you use a polariser to get this?

Thanks rrstuff.... it's about 2300 ft to the highest part of the cliff from where I'm standing.

Thanks surrjohn... No, no polarizer. The Sigma 8-16 mm doesn't have a filter ring.

Lots of Zion to come, thanks! I used a little vibrance on the trees, and not too much saturation at all on the cliffs. In daylight the color of this red sandstone is very striking and you have to be careful with saturation. I have one I'll post later where I actually had to desaturate the red in late afternoon, because the alpenglow made it so bright that I thought it looked over the top.
